A pro-Trump group is using Obama's voice out of context in radio ad for Georgia's special election - CNN.
Quote:
An outside group that supports President Donald Trump is running a radio ad in Atlanta ahead of Georgia's special election Tuesday that takes the voice of former President Barack Obama out of context to make the argument that Democrats take black voters for granted.

Great America Alliance, a pro-Trump non-profit group that previously ran ads attacking former FBI director James Comey during his testimony, is running an ad that quotes Obama narrating his autobiographical book "Dreams From My Father." The ad, however, does not mention that in the selected passage, Obama is actually quoting someone else who is speaking about the black community and Chicago politics before the early 1980s.


Quote:
Eric Beach, a co-chair of Great America Alliance, said the ad was an attempt to run something "outside the box" and that the group was trying to show "creatively" that Democrats have a history of failed promises."
No, Mr. Beach, that is just plain lying/fraud.

Republicans are willing to do anything to win. Even criminal and treasonous things.

Trump has embolden Republicans to be more inventive regarding their shenanigans. Hmm

I think xspkr Gingrich said it best (about a different question but certainly applicable here), facts don't matter, perception is the only truth which matters

and this is allegedly the party of people who use the facts

Remember the time the entire White House had to lawyer up over "fake news"?
Yeah, me neither.
And now the lawyers had to get lawyers!
